? >> definitely seen gradual changes as i'm sure you have. look, i've had to use my former cheerleading voice many times to get a question to presidents and to candidates for president. but i've had to do that more and more as has jim over the years because, look, i mean it's just the world that we live in from their perspective that with twitter, the internet, with everything going viral immediately, it's hard for them to say anything without altering the message that they're trying to get out that day. having said that, it is frustrating having been a reporter on several presidential campaigns, you're there, you're going on the bus, you're going off the bus, you're sitting through every speech. and you want to have access to the candidate to be able to ask them questions. and especially at the end of a trip like this where you're really going full bore and you don't have a chance to ask anything, that's what happens when you really try to ask. and you have to be careful of your surroundings, but you got to do your job. >> gloria, and i have to ask you, in the big picture, how important is this r

's ed lavandera is in aurora for us. ed, what do we know about this package? >> reporter: well, we're still trying to gather information on what exactly is inside that package, wolf. but as you mentioned that law enforcement official telling cnn that on monday police and fbi discovered a package that was apparent apparently sent by james holmes, the 24-year-old suspected gunman. now it's unclear obviously if this package was indeed sent by him, it was clearly sent before he was taken into custody. it arrived at some point on monday at the university mail room. we've also been told by hospital officials over the last couple of days this is something we've been monitoring for some time that there were two packages that were suspicious and were being looked into, one found in the mail room and also one that was actually delivered to a university professor. so we've been trying to nail down more information on this. and we'll continue to do so, wolf. >> what's the university of colorado saying about all of this, ed? >> reporter: well, now that the details have come out that this packag

case scenario for all of us in the region is when you get full-out civil war, there is no coming back. if it breaks down, if civil order breaks down to the point of no return, then it will take years to fix syria. and i have a feeling that we're seeing the signs of that over the past three weeks. the only people that can bring us back from that brink is obviously the president and the regime. and i believe this is the last chance that they have. >> my exclusive interview with king abdullah will air during our next hour during our 5:00 p.m. eastern hour here in "the situation room." you're going to want to hear what he has to say about syria a lot more detail. also, we spoke about mitt romney and barack obama in the interview. he's got some serious thoughts about these two individuals. >>> let's get to the presidential race right now. in today's republican triple play in ohio, not only is mitt romney campaigning there, so are two men getting mentioned, lots of mentions in fact, as possible running mates. the louisiana governor, bobby jindal, and the former florida governor, jeb bush. c
labott is joining us live with the very latest. bulgarians are of course investigating. i'm sure the israelis are as well. first of all, what are the bulgarians saying? >> reporter: well, wolf, forensic investigators on the scene. it's all very preliminary at this point, but they're saying that this was caused by a bus bomb already placed inside the bus. that's really all they know, but they're not ruling anything out. they say it's possibly a terrorist attack. obviously the israelis saying they're sure of it. but bulgarians not ruling anything in, not ruling anything out at this point, wolf. >> didn't take very long for the prime minister of israel, benjamin netanyahu to directly blame iran for this attack. >> reporter: that's right. a short time ago prime minister netanyahu, wolf, put out a statement saying all signs are leading to iran, his defense minister just spoke to reporters a short time ago. let's take a listen to what he said. >> this is clearly a terrorist attack initiated by hezbollah, hamas, jihad or any other group under the terror of iran or other radical muslim g

[laughter] let me say this. we are having -- this is a pet peeve so thank you. this discussion about all that matters is tax rate is ridiculous. i cut upper head tax rates by 50% and by the time my term is out, we will eliminate it. tax breaks matter. -- tax rates matter. but any business person will also tell you the quality of a workforce matters. can they get goods and services efficiently? is government transparent? this year, we had 147 business places on the books. we had more than l.a., phoenix, and philadelphia combined. we massively consolidated them down to 43. i do not like you focusing on city hall. i want you focusing on your customer. my favorite example of this consolidation was if you buy a dog, they need a license. if he so the caller, you need another license. if you want to offer the service of watching the dog, you need another license. i was just looking for a kid to b

such a wonderful job i think of giving us good information. researching those issues which are critical to the american people. and the important to the american people in making decisions on where they want to go. so neara, congratulations to you on your leadership as well. give my best to john poddesta who is out there in the netsdzer world doing something that we know is wonderful. i know tom is here my former colleague who is working with you. and your vice president who does such a wonderful job and such a good friend. good morning. good afternoon i guess i should say. as he prepared to take office president kennedy spoke to a nation troubled by anxiety over america's leadership in the world and uncertainty over whether future americans will inherit a strong and secure commay. he offered not -- economy. he offered not soothing words but a rousing appeal and to action. he spoke to his generation of americans and urged them not to shrink. to advance. today i would suggest we confront a similar anxiety but much greater global competition. it is i think therefore essential for us to se
illness is important. what we learned from this program could help us in other programs of diseases coming from iraq and afghanistan. if you get a chance to visit walter reed bethesda hospital see some very strange viruses and molds and funguses that are coming from places that we never expected to see but we're seeing them now. this research program could help another research program to deal with these deadly diseases that are affecting our troops in large numbers. and so while we already give $10 million in this bill, i am going to agree with mr. kucinich and agree to his amendment to add the additional money. mr. dicks: if the gentleman will yield? mr. young: i do. mr. dicks: this gulf war illness has been something that bothered me a great deal. it's a very difficult diagnosis on what was causing this, but i think an additional investment here is worthy and i think we should accept the amendment. i'm glad the chairman accepts it. mr. young: i thank the gentleman for his comments and thank mr. kucinich for offering the amendment and i yield back the balance of my time. the chair: the q

[captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2012] from government was there in the wee hours of the morning when we were doing our regular jobs at the same time working to start our business. small businesses operate in a world of bottom lines washington knows very little about. unlike washington, they don't have the luxury to deficit spend, print more money or profess as, quote, spending cuts, lower than anticipated growth. when the president claimed the american system allowed the askess to thrive, he made a dangerous -- allowed the success to thrive, he made a dangerous error. it does not permit them to drive. that language suggests government is a benefactor possessing the authority to give or take the blessings of open commerce as it sees fit. no, government does not allow you to thrive. government, when it operates in its constitutional capacity, does not object -- obstruct your thriving. ask

to the statute of our speaker. -- stature of our speaker. let's take a few minutes to provide some useful historical context. to think back to the beginning not only of -- not of this century, but the last. the world today is transfixed by the phenomenon of rapid economic growth in a number of countries that are rapidly treating major powers in the world. of course, the biggest are china and india. some others that would look fairly large in comparison to greet carter -- powers in the past, such as vietnam, russia, indonesia, and brazil. they are becoming much bigger players in the world. 100 years ago, the rise of germany as a great power led to two at catastrophically destructive wars. that also spawned a number of other tragedies, such as nazism and bolshevism, which turned the 20th century, which had begun with a decade of great promise, into the bloodiest in history. we cannot afford to repeat that history with even more terrible weapons of the 21st century. the challenge of managing a merging towers has become, arguably, the major challenge of our time. not that we are short on chal
? >> i will say the way i get news is i use my twitter account to get almost all the news i get. for many people, especially young people, that is a cool way to do it. i find because i used my twitter stream -- i set up a specific group of people i follow for breaking news, and it has been built over several years, and it's really large at this point -- the point being i find i am a good 25 minutes ahead of people on breaking news because i am on twitter. i checked but other sources. that is my favorite way to follow news, and it feels the same as the shift when i was in newspapers. i was the only person reading blogs in the newsroom. twitter can serve the same purpose. can be fast and wrong, sorry you need to check. if you are a news junkie, that is my favorite thing. i also love "the wall street journal," fox is. i like to watch my own cliffs. hotair.com, because i work there now. the george mason university economists have their own blogs. a woman who works at newsweek -- i love reading her. aside from news, i like reading more analytical, wonky stuff. everybody done? since we are on c
administrations suggests an answer. he has said regulatory uncertainty is invented by republicans to use current economic problems to support an ajeopardya year in and year out. it is political way. look at what this bill would do. it seems like frankenstein and it is very frightening. the underlying bill would block all efforts to protect public health, safety and the environment until the unemployment rate falls below the figure of 6% and it would impose canses on the government and would put impedements to consent decrees and settlements. nuclear power, the safety of the american public would be put at serious risk. my amendment to attempt to make this bill slightly less of a horror show. the dangers of nuclear power are well known. one accident could doom millions of people. because of the disasters that could happen, regulations to prevent from meltdowns in advance are important. the underlying bill would make it harder to adopt rules and policies. hampering the ability of the n.r.c. to put in safety measures could be devastating. my amendment would free the n.r.c. from the burdens of this
it is worth the effort. when you think congress should go from here? you can also catch up with us on all of your favorite social media sites on twitter, fiscal -- facebook andy can you tell us at journal.cspan.org. some reaction already coming in on facebook on the health care repeal. one person writes it is a typical gop tactic. another person wrote, they did the right thing. he doesn't call. we want to hear your thoughts on the subject. we will be talking about it for the first 35 minutes. first, we want to talk about mitt romney who addressed the national association for the advancement of colored people. we will discuss governor romney's speech. colorado was governor romney received by the crowds ha? -- how was governor romney received by the crowd? . caller: - - guest: he made some statements he knew would not be received well in the room. he said he would be appealed in federal health-care law. -- repeal the federal health- care law. the booing was only a few seconds in a 22 minute speech. host: how has the romney campaign is on the? guest: i spoke with one of his senior advisers.
, sent each of us a letter with a "time" magazine cover by joel kind entitled "how to die." this article is jarring to many because it's an issue that most would rather not confront. as a result, there's a great deal of unnecessary pain, confusion and suffering. it masks one of the most important issues in health care which, despite the manufactured controversy over death panels, is a rare sweet spot in the health care debate. it can improve the quality of life, in some cases length of life, and most important, we can help people understand their circumstances and get the care that they want. if this happens, the cost of health care will go down even as satisfaction and quality goes up. for most americans, the protocols followed by almost every hopped and practitioner will be to give the maximum amount of the most aggressive care in end of life situation, especially if patients have the money or insurance, they will be hooked up in their final stages of life to be resuscitated, cracking their ribs, massaging hearts. there will be tubes inserted, chemicals will be pumped, defibrillators w
of one broken promise after another. the president told us we would be saving $2,500 per household if we passed this health care bill. the americans' health insurance premiums have increased by almost that amount, which means the president was off by a stunning $5,000 per household. and americans are pulling their pockets inside out saying, mr. president, i don't have the money to pay $5,000 more per year on my health insurance policy and of course they don't. because this has to be the crown jewel of socialism. that's what government health care is. and senior citizens realized early on, they have the most to lose by the president's health insurance policy because what they found from this bill which has been commonly called obamacare is that $575 billion will be stolen away from them out of medicare. and not only will they have $575 billion less in medicare, still looking to having to spend, senior citizens out of their pockets $200 billion more in increased taxes for medicare. that's a big loss for america's senior citizens. but it doesn't stop there, mr. speaker. millions of american
of which have significantly advanced u.s. national security interests while also strengthening our national intelligence and military intelligence capabilities during a very challenging period in our nation's history. throughout his time in uniform, lieutenant general burgess has demonstrated an unyielding dedication to duty and innate ability to inspire enthusiasm and commitment to serve those he leads. lieutenant general burgess' selfless service to country and his unparalleled personal drive have been instrumental in transforming defense intelligence into a more capable and cooperative enterprise, providing the critical intelligence required by military commanders and policymakers both at the defense and national levels. commissioned as a second lieutenant through the auburn university rotc program in 1974, lieutenant general burgess began his career with a series of assignments in armor and military intelligence units in germany and at fort stewart, georgia, where he was directly responsible for planning multiple highly successful national training center rotations, numerous command pos
why this is a particularly exciting project for geeks like us.

[laughter] >> lynn was sort of talking about florida. listen, the fact of the matter is, this is -- it is phenomenally difficult to measure with precision what the effect of advertising is. and the person who bought george w. bush's ads in 2000 always used to say with a big smile on his face that it was the most efficient ad buy in history in florida. he didn't waste a single dollar on florida. now, obviously, with a big smile on his face and joking. what he meant was a little too close for comfort for the bush people, but if you're looking at it as a complete economic efficiency, they didn't waste any money in florida because they won by 530 votes, whatever it was. anything they would have spent more than that would be a waste. but they, obviously, don't think like that. they're obviously not trying to get efficiency in t
also find us online at twitter. we can share that on the air. you can also join the conversation on facebook by looking for c-span or e-mail us. host: here's our question for you this morning. what do you think of president obama's decision to push for a one-year extension of middle class tax cuts? here's the associated press reporting. the president is launching a push to extend tax cuts to the middle class as he seeks to shift the election year economic debate away from the dismal jobs market and toward the issue of tax fairness. obama in an address from the white house today will call on congress to pass a one-year of tax cuts for people making less than $250,000 a year. that's according to a senior administration official. the president's appeal to the middle class voters is aimed at drawing a contrast with republican rival mitt romney and congressional republicans. the house g.o.p. is expected to make its own push this month for an extension of all the bush era tax cuts due to expire at the end of the year, including on wealthier income earners. the president opposes extendi
from passengers on a flight from new york to madrid. tom costello covers aviation for us. tom, how are you? >> reporter: good morning. delta flight to madrid, 206 passengers on board. it left new york at 8:00 but soon after turned back to jfk and escorted to a remote location on the runway after a passenger spotted something that looked very suspicious. on the floor of a lavatory, a straw with wires in it. the crew notified on board air marshals and then a female passenger began having difficulty breathing as she pointed out another male passenger she thought was the last person into the lavatory. the male passenger denied going to the rest room or having anything to do with the wires but the air marshals and crew became concerned that the female passenger might be part of a diversion. listen to the pilot talking to the tower when they were on the ramp but before police boarded the plane. >> we have a lady that is on oxygen that the flight attendants want paramedics for, but we think she's the one that is supposed to be the decoy to keep looking at the gentleman that was playing wi
they could do it cheaper. give us a special model out there and launch it as a pilot and we'll show you how we can do these special programming and give us a return. well, after reviewing now what is a history of all of that, it was deemed that there were overpayments anywhere between 12% and 14%, so the dollars were slid over to programs like filling the doughnut hole and providing for screenings for our seniors. not taking it away from a category of health care consumers. in this case, an aged demographic of seniors, but taking those savings as we sweep those savings and reinvesting them in a way that provides balance, more sensitivity for the consumer rather than having record profits developed for an industry. to me that was progressive policy, and for people to then take those savings and use them in their own budget presentations for other purposes was disingenuous. now, when you talk about the efforts today of the affordable care act to include an exchange, what i think is oftentimes, representative garamendi, sometimes people see this as a public exchange that will be run by the gov
without violating the institutional rights and corporation of free speech and it is just simply using contract law. for example, if your corporation sells something to the federal government, then you're not allowed to donate to the federal government and that to a political campaigns and that would probably ban by probably 490 of the fortune 500 companies , lockheed, exxon, every company. you could just put it in contract law. but i don't think the politicians would ever do that. host: next up is a call from tucson, arizona. loretta, you're on the air. caller: hi. i just wanted to say that i don't believe people really are voting on the issues and i think a lot of the money in politics is going into negative ads. i know here in arizona, we're full of them with senate and the presidency and it seems like the issues are overlooked and things like the health care bill, people don't even know what's in it and they say they don't like it just because democrats did it. host: what are you thinking of the tenor of the ads? are you watching them? caller: the ones i've seen so far are pretty n
economic news three months in a row now. are people just used to it? is it baked in? do they just accept where this economy is? we hope not. we hope that we don't accept these numbers regardless of the politics of it. you hope people don't accept this as a new norm. >> do they think that mitt romney could do better? >> that's the big question. >> we're going to explore all of that this morning. let us know what you think. find us on twitter. rest of your headlines. a lot more to tell you '. there has been a drone strike in northwestern pakistan and killed at least 15 suspected taliban militants. pakistani intelligence says this happens in a village in north waziristan. four missiles fired at compound believed to be owned by taliban commander. this comes as tension grows over those american drone strikes in the country. it's the first strike since pakistan reopened nato supply routes this past week. george zimmerman is a free man yet again this morning. here he is leaving a florida jail after posting the required 10 pierce of his $1 million bond. is he now staying in a temporary safe hous
process, that would be something that i think all of us could agree upon. but in the absence of that breakthrough medically i thank the gentleman for his bipartisan wishes of a happy birthday. mr. bishop: as someone with whiter hair than you have, i understand what you're talking about. let me yield three minutes if i could to the gentleman from california, mr. rohrabacher, who does indeed have some of these industries in his district and understands full well what this bill is actually attempting to accomplish. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from california is recognized for three minutes. mr. rohrabacher: i rise in support of the rule and rise in support of h.r. 4402. tomorrow we will be considering h.r. 4402, that takes significant steps towards making much-needed reforms to our nation's mineral exploration and mineral permitting process. h.r. 4402 will force the hands of unyielding bureaucrats who seem intent on obstructing any and all mining despite the detrimental effects that their actions have on the american people. at a time when china threatens to hamstring

that, your views of the law have changed. joining us as we start the discussion and asking the question and a much more formal way is frank newport, editor in chief of gallup organization and they did a poll over the last couple of days, several days after the supreme court decision, to find out some of the americans's attitude. guest: my pleasure, good to be with the. host: you write -- average americans are certainly in a better position than economists on how the legislation will affect the economy but their assumptions and perceptions have political repercussions nonetheless. it asked the question, what would it the economy. what did you find out question montego that is one of the key issues because the economy is a top problem in the country so the implications to the economy is important. we've found a tilt to the negative, nine points -- 46% said they thought the health- care law recently ruled constitutional by the supreme court would hurt the national economy and 37% said it would help. like a lot of the polling which has been done previous to the supreme court decision, there
the same weapons to use. third thing is when you think about it with 320 million americans in this country it's kind of amazing that this thing, does not happen more often. host: thanks for the call. again this headline from inside the "washington post." the president who was scheduled to travel tot west coast but stops in oregon, seattle, san francisco, and reno for the conventions will be leaving at about noon eastern time today from the white house to head to colorado before resuming his campaign appearances this week. mitt romney is off the campaign trail through the weekend. he is back on the west coast this week with his remarks at the vfw. and then later this week he heads to london for the opening ceremonies of the summer games. he headed up the winter games in salt lake city and then visits to poland and israel. a week long visit by the republican presidential candidate. back to your calls and comments. and the debate which is back front and center on gun control in america. democrat's line. good morning. caller: good morning. my comment about the second amendment rights or any ot
anxiety with much greater global competition. it is therefore essential for us to seize the initiative and education, innovation, technology, alternative energy, and advanced manufacturing. our leaders have secured. our economy will remain the strongest on earth. americans will continue to find good jobs and have confidence that they will make it in america. the key to success i believe is a renewed dedication to the kind of individual responsibility and commitment that made this country the great country that it is. america's history has been one of innovating and developing. better products and services. it has been a history in which manufacturing goods has played a major role. americans believe that making things in america must be an important part of our future. if we're going to be successful. manufacturing has been a bright star in our current recovery. over the last three years we have seen strong gains by manufacturers. we witnessed 28 consecutive job growth months. manufacturing has added many jobs since 2010. productivity driven 6% in the first quarter of 2012. and gesture
with that. mark potter, thank you so much. 7:18. here is natalie. >>> so many used social media sites to stay in touch with friends. now a growing number of police departments are turning to them to help solve crimes. nbc justice correspondent pete williams has details. good morning, pete. >> reporter: this is the version to generate tips from the old days of wanted posters to crime stoppers on television, now social media. twitter, facebook and increasingly youtube. sheriff's deputies in hillsboro county, florida wanted to find a man who stole a canned drink and used it to attack this convenience store clerk. they posted the surveillance video on youtube. someone who recognized the attacker called in the tip. within two days he was arrested and has since pleaded guilty. just this week, police in akron, ohio wanted to know who was using stolen credit cars to buy things at local stores. they posted this surveillance video hoping to generate tips. it's part of a growing trend, police expanding their reach using social media to assist investigations. maryland posted this video vo of a fl
to discuss with you today. somebody had told us in the 1950's or 1960's that a black citizen would serve as the 44th president of the united states, we would have been proud and many would have been surprised. we might have assumed the presidency would be the last door of opportunity to be opened. before that came to pass every other barrier in the path to equal opportunity wycherley have to have come now. it has not happen quite that way. many barriers remain. in some ways the challenges are more complicated than before. across america and within your own ranks, there is serious debate about the way forward. if equal opportunity were it and accomplished fact, then a bad economy would be equal for everyone. instead is worse for african- americans and almost every way. in june while the overall unemployment rate remained stuck at 8.2%, the unemployment rate for african-americans actually went up from 13% to 14.4%. americans of every backgrounder asking when the economy will finally recover. you in particular are entitled to an answer. if equal opportunity -- [applause] if equal opportunit
committee, my colleague, the gentleman from new jersey, my friend, mr. andrews, urged us to, and i quote, dispassionately examine the facts, end of quote. i agree with just that sentiment and would like to take a moment to do just that. earlier this year, the centers for medicare and medicaid, c.m.s., reported that health insurance premiums are expected to rise by over 44% over the next nine years as a result of obamacare and since obamacare was signed into law, there's been a steady decline in the number of americans on private health insurance. a report from the mckinsey group found that more than 50% of employers had a high awareness of the law and they said that they would stop offering health insurance, confirming what republicans have been saying nor three years -- for three years, and that is that obamacare is designed to force employers to drop coverage in an attempt to get americans to enter the new health care exchanges. madam speaker, i ask unanimous consent to include the "wall street journal" article on this report. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. mr. sessions: a
